Jeff Ament spent most of his childhood marked by poverty in the town of Big Sandy, Montana, where he and his four younger siblings were raised by their parents, George and Penny Ament. He attended Big Sandy High School and spent his teenage years playing basketball, football and track, as well as playing the bass guitar. Upon matriculation in 1981, he moved to Missoula, Montana, where he enrolled at the University of Montana. He studied art and played basketball for two years, before dropping out due to the college’s decision to cut its graphic design program.

Jeff moved to Seattle, Washington, together with his band named Deranged Diction, becoming acquainted with various Seattle musicians including Steve Turner and Mark Arm, with whom he founded a band called Green River. The band released only one full length studio album before its break-up, titled “Rehab Doll”, but nonetheless managed to garner a substantial local reputation, and had a significant influence on the genre which would later become known as grunge. This period added a lot to Jeff’s net worth.

Subsequently, Ament co-founded the band Mother Love Bone, which by late 1988 had become one of Seattle’s more promising bands. However, before the band managed to attract any wider attention, their lead singer died of an overdose resulting in an abrupt disbandment. Subsequently, Ament spent some time playing in such bands as War Babies and Temple of the Dog, and during that time he met Eddie Vedder, a singer who had previously arrived in Seattle in order to audition for Ament’s next band, which would eventually become Pearl Jam.

In 1990, he formed Pearl Jam, with singer Eddie Vedder, lead guitarist Mike McCready, rhythm guitarist Stone Gossard, and drummer Matt Cameron. Since then the band has released ten full length studio albums, its first in 1991 under the title “Ten” which achieved diamond status, and which increased Ament’s net worth by a large margin, as well as his popularity. The next studio album “Vs.” came out in 1993, peaking at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 chart, since when other albums have included “Yield” (1998), “Backspacer” (2009), etc, and most recently “Lightning Bolt” (2013), all of which helped add a considerable amount to his fortune.

To speak further of his musical career, Ament has worked on many other musical projects, and has released two solo albums entitled “Tone” (2008) and “While My Heart Beats” (2012), increasing further his net worth.

Over the following years, Pearl Jam has sold over 30 million albums in the USA and over 60 million across the globe. They have garnered numerous nominations and awards, including a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance, among many others. In 2016 they were nominated for induction into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame.

Speaking about his personal life, Jeff Ament has been married to Pandora Andre-Beatty since February 2016. They divide their time between two residences, in Seattle, Washington and in Missoula, Montana. In his spare time, Ament enjoys snowboarding, graphic design, and playing basketball. He is also known as a huge supporter of the organization Save the Children, and is a proponent of organic farming.
